In this cartoon, Ford Williams caricatures Mississippi Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and Attorney General Jim Hood and their road paving feud. The scene is the Neshoba County Fair Pavilion where both elected officials will campaign for Governor.
The irregular and slightly irreverent cartoon series – #justsayin – reflects the world views of a Generation Z cartoonist. In the series, Ford has lampooned Obama, Hillary, Trump, Dak, Lil’ Wayne, Samsung, Gov. Bryant, Coach Hugh Freeze, HB 1523, Ole Miss, the Neshoba County Fair, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, the UAW/Nissan vote in Canton, Mississippi, the disdain for Confederate monuments, ex-Senator Al Franken., Papa John, the Golden State Warriors, Melania’s wardrobe, newly minted Laker Malik Newman, and Trump’s appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
For the start of the 3rd year in the series, Ford returns to the Neshoba County Fair to again honor his grandfather, Snooky Williams of Water Valley, and his late great-grandfather, Brown Williams, one of the original founders of the Neshoba County Fair and Williams Brothers Grocery Store in Williamsville.
Ford is a rising junior at the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia, and a 2016 honors graduate of Jackson Academy. In 2016, Portico Magazine named Ford as one of the seven Rising Artists in the Jackson Metro area.
